Title: Word of God Speak
Album: Spoken For
Artist: MercyMe
Tabbed by: Jason

*Explanation for submiting this tab: I saw that
you'll didn't have the song arpeggiated so I
thought it would be cool to submit it here*

This song is originally composed and played on piano 
but I thought it was such a beautiful song why 
not transpose it to guitar.

I suggest listening to the song to get the timing, 
and how many times you need to repeat stuff right.

foremost, thanks for a nice tab! :) you chose a great song and tabbed it well. i had a request to play this one for our youth group and this is great. i play a few things differently than written above and wanted to let other people know what i was doing in case they wanted to try it.

one thing was, instead of this part:

e|----0-------1-- e|----0-------1-------0-------1--
B|1---1---1---1-- B|1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1--
G|--0---0---0---0 i've been playing: G|--2---2---2---2---2---2---2---0
D|--------------- D|3---------------3--------------
A|--------------- A|-------------------------------
E|1-------------- E|-------------------------------

or, this is how i strum it:

e|0-0-0-0-0-0-1-11|0-0-0-0-0-0-1-11|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-11|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-11
B|1-1-1-1-1-1-1-11|1-1-1-1-1-1-1-11|1-1-1-1-1-1-1-11|1-1-1-1-1-1-1-11
G|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-00|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-00|2-2-2-2-2-2-2-22|2-2-2-2-2-2-2-22
D|2-2-2-2-2-2-2-22|2-2-2-2-2-2-2-22|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-33|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-33
A|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-33|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-33|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-33|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-33
E|x-x-x-x-x-x-x-xx|x-x-x-x-x-x-x-xx|x-x-x-x-x-x-x-xx|x-x-x-x-x-x-x-xx
1 & 2 & 3 & 4e&a 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4

(i tried to convey on the bottom line the counting that i use. it's not exactly how the song is, but then again, the actual song is on piano and i just think this sounds nice :p)

for the chorus, i use basically the same strum patterns or improv fingerpicking similar to what's written for the verses. only real difference being that i'll barre the whole A#, not just the top four strings, and sometimes i'll hammer between an F and the Fadd9 that's written.

ok, that's it. looks like i wrote way more than i intended, but i'm really enjoying this song right now and hope you will too. thanks again to the original contributor that i worked off of, and, of course, to mercyme for some great songwriting. :)
